I saved this plant from my mother a few years back and would like to know what it is. It has five fingers to each leaf, it gets lavender flowers that bloom for just a few days. It flowers at this time of the year. Each fall when I bring it in, it looses almost all it’s leaves and grows them back progressively as spring approaches. The leaves turn dark green under lower light. It gets full sun until 1 pm and seems very happy. Thank you for any help.
